The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) recently awarded Staker and Parson Cos. five Environmental Eagle Awards for its commitment to the environment.
Staker and Parson received four Silver awards and one Bronze award for the following sites: Brigham City North Facility, South Weber Facility, McGuire Facility, Beck Street Quarry and Keigley Quarry. The awards recognize aggregate producers that meet and exceed technical environmental and regulatory requirements.
The Environmental Eagle Award program was created in 1992 to honor companies committed to protecting and preserving the natural environment surrounding their operations. Criteria include: extent to which the operation’s environmental control measures produce measurable results better than regulatory requirements; extent to which an operation has implemented effective environmental control measures; quality and effectiveness of an operation’s pollution prevention and waste minimization programs; quality and effectiveness of the operation’s proactive environmental program; and degree of employee involvement in environmental programs.
